Humbling Moment

Saturday, October 16, 2010

After a week of carefully measuring my servings to be absolutely certain I am staying within my calorie limits, I find nothing spectacular has happened. Okay, I admit it, I was SO confident that there would be a great AH AH moment, and weight would come sliding off. I think I can put that dream aside. I call times like this "humbling moments". It is so difficult to have to deal with food choices each day without the immediate gratification on the scale. But I will continue with the plan, since the alternative of continuing to damage my health is not acceptable.

What I have gained is a recognition of the enormous effort and discipline used by my SparkPeople friends for each pound lost and strength gained. Wow!

    Oh my gosh how I can relate. I have been trying to lose weight for four years. Before you say poor me, be aware that I, of course, have not been consistently eating right for more than two weeks! I just never seem to learn! I am trying to be better and so far I can tell a difference. I can breathe when I button my pants. Whoo whee!

    Keep tracking it really will start coming off. It took me about 3 weeks before I started losing. I think my body had to recover from the "Starvation" mode I had put it in, before it realized there was enough fuel going in that it could expend some of it. emoticon
